The 1.5 Million Dollar Mark...

Animals, using various means, mark their surroundings in an attempt to repel any competitors from encroaching on their self-proclaimed territories. Humans, especially those of religious/tribal tendencies do exactly the same albeit at a slightly heftier price; in this case, the price tag was 1.5 Million Dollars. 

Yes, a full 1.5 Million Dollars was squandered erecting a Gigantic fully illuminated Cross in the town of Qanat Bekish to serve as nothing more than a Christian territorial mark.

But let me not get into the religious control imperatives that justify such investments in non-materially productive assets. At the end of the day, what matters is not of this earth; or is it? 

Anyway, can someone please explain to me the fascination Christians have with the contraption that - according to their accounts - killed their God? I mean, seriously, what is it with them using the Cross in their art, architecture, territorial marks, ornaments, stickers, and what not. For me, it is comparable to Jews adorning themselves with the Nazi Swastika or Future Movement supporters embedding a Mitsubishi Logo in all their party paraphernalia.  

But hey, what do I know?
